 uaf_timeout         - the timeout for the session, defaults to 3600
 uaf_secret          - the value to use as a "salt" when encrypting
 uaf_filter          - the url filter to use, defaults to /^{app_rootp}\/(login|static).*/

 uaf_login_title     - title for the login page, defaults to 'Please Login"
 uaf_login_wrapper   - the wrapper for the login page, defaults to "wrapper.tt"
 uaf_login_template  - the template for the login page, defaults to "uaf_login.tt"

 uaf_denied_title    - title for the denied page, defaults to "Login Denied"
 uaf_denied_wrapper  - the wrapper for the denied page, defaults to "wrapper.tt"
 uaf_denied_template - the template for the denied page, defaults to "uaf_denied.tt"

 uaf_logout_title    - title for the logout page, default to "Logout"
 uaf_logout_wrapper  - the wrapper for the logout page, defaults to "wrapper.tt"
 uaf_logout_template - the template for the logout page, defaults to "uaf_logout.tt"

METHODS ^

uaf_is_valid

This method is used to authenticate the current session. The default authentication behaviour is based on security tokens. A token is stored within the session store and a token is retireved from a cookie. If the two match, the session is condsidered autheticate. When the session is authenticated an User object is returned.

uaf_validate

This method handles the validation of the current session. It accepts two parameters. They are a username and password. When the session is validated, an User object is created and returned. The default validate() method only knows about "admin" and "demo" users, with default passwords of "admin" and "demo". This method should be overridden to refelect your applications Users datastore and validation policy.

uaf_invalidate

This method will invalidate the current session. You may wish to override this method. By default it removes the User object form the session store, removes the secuity token from the session store and removes the security cookie.

uaf_set_token

This method creates the security token. It is passed the User object. The default action is to create a token using parts of the User object and random data. This token is then stored in the session store and sent to the browser as a cookie.

uaf_avoid

Some application may wish to implement an avoidence scheme for certain situations. This is a hook to allow that to happen. The default action is to do nothing.

uaf_check_credentials

Check the username and password for validity.
